Can acne scars/blackheads scar be permanent?

QuestionI have acne scars ranging from 2007-2013 and blackhead scars that range from 2010-2013

can this be permanent? are there always treatment for this?Best AnswerHi Krystal,

Sorry to hear about your troubles - fortunately, there is a way to lessen scarring from acne.

There are different types of acne scarring, so knowing the difference is helpful. There are two main categories of acne scarring: atrophic (meaning loss of skin tissue) and hypertrophic (meaning excessive skin tissue.) Atrophic scars include ice pick scars, boxcar scars and rolling scars; keloid scars are hypertrophic scars.

There are many options available for the treatment of acne scarring. Most atrophic acne scars respond best to resurfacing laser treatments, such as the Fractional CO2 laser using the F.A.S.T technique and the Fraxel laser. Other treatment options for acne scarring include subcision, dermal fillers, punch excision and chemical peels.

Skin discoloration, or post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation, can improve with the use of topical medications like retinoids or hydroquinone. More significant hyperpigmentation must be addressed with chemical peels or lasers, such as the Fraxel or the Fractional CO2 resurfacing lasers.

Good luck!Other AnswerThere is quick treatment for such a thing but depending on how bad it is, it may be a more serious procedure. You can tell when they''re permanent after having them for about 3 years.Tagspermanent scar scarsblackheads acne
